Hoover Class List 2019-2020

Hoover Class List 2019-2020

In a country where most accuse college campuses of being “liberal bubbles,” Stanford is blessed by the presence of the Hoover Institution, which provides access to some of the brightest conservative minds in the nation.

The ability to take classes with such professors is truly a privilege; after all, it has not always been the case that Hoover fellows could hold joint appointments with Stanford. Unfortunately, up until now, there was no list of the classes taught by these fellows. The Review has taken the liberty of searching Stanford’s catalogue, and coming up with a truly comprehensive list.

Recently, Stanford’s relationship with Hoover has come under fire, both from the faculty and student body, in a thinly-disguised partisan attempt to silence political dissent. Although Stanford plans to continue its relationship with the institution, such efforts drive home even more poignantly the importance of taking advantage of these classes: on most campuses, such voices have won out. Whether you yourself are a conservative or not, you can benefit from the expertise of these scholars, and from understanding perspectives which about half of the country holds, yet are completely unrepresented on most college campuses.
